Another one million plus night for The Block (2nd – 1,086,000), proving the adage that people will tune in and watch anything related to the last few weeks of reality shows. With no early Friday night AFL on the East Coast, Better Homes and Gardens (7th – 869,000) popped back up and performed well, though MasterChef Australia (11th – 666,000) didn’t fare too well against it. Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (18th – 529,000) again performed solidly for it’s Friday night timeslot, though it wasn’t competitive at all.
